Video: OK Composer @ CalArts

You can now watch Sunday’s OK Composer performance!

We performed a piece I composed for choir called “Titania’s Lullaby.” Its lyrics come from a scene in A Midsummer Night’s Dream in which fairies lull their queen Titania to sleep with a song. It was originally commissioned for an experimental theatre company’s production of the play.

Oberon, Titania, Puck, and fairies. Painting by William Blake, 1796.

Special thanks to CalArts/Nicolas Bejarano for the video; to Edward Park and Justin Scheid for curating and running the concert; and to the ensemble: Amy Golden, Diana Cioffari, Drew Corey, Gina Kodel, Edward Park, Julian Karahalios, and Luke Morin.
And thank you to everyone who tuned into watch OK Composer on Sunday!
